OMG this place is lovely! I am so glad that I have my nose and a good sense of smell!
'Odds and Suds' has the most amazing selections of hand made soaps, all beautifully packaged .
But mixing and mingling with the soap displays, were many other treats...especially vintage bits and pieces, which is what I love.
And the lady owner was an absolute treasure, allowing me to snap pics for my blog (unlike another shop owner, who refused my request...her reason being that it might bring her hordes of customers who would want her to make things and she would not be able to keep up with the demand! Anyway, her loss!)
The thing is that you think you are just walking into a soap shop and you end up seeing so much more. But I was very good, I only bought one soap ! It was beautifully wrapped!
And just look at the reflection in the window! I didn't realise, until I got home and loaded my photos, that these old cars were behind me!
I love Ashburton. I feel the need to go back very soon !!
